GN09: Greener Nanomaterials Design and Production

SNNI's 4th annual conference focused on cutting edge research in greener nanomaterials design and production and brought together academics, industrialists and policymakers to discuss approaches to developing economically viable, environmentally benign methods to advance nanotechnology.

This year's 2-day program integrated presentations from national experts with regional representatives including a keynote presentations by Dr. Hilary Godwin from the UCLA California Nanosystems Institute, Dr. Don Tomalia, The National Dendrimer and Nanotechnology Center, Central Michigan University and Dr. Peter Mirau, AFRL. A poster session was held on Monday evening and included a tour of the new ONAMI Lorrey Lokey Laboratories at the University of Oregon.
